Good afternoon, I am a new member of the forum and have been helped tremendously since joining a week or so ago. I am a 30 year old guy, and i feel as though my taste my vary from some of the older gentleman on this forum. I certainly like a more euro sense of style. I picked up my first pair of AEs the other day, and still need a black pair of shoes and maybe a light brown/tan/walnut looking pair. I have done my homework here guys. Yes i have read countless forums on the high regard of C&Js, aldens, AEs, ect, ect... I have learned this forum is all about finding value, and not about the name, and i respect that... That being said, what really catches my eye are some of the Grenson shoes, such as the Rogers... I find many of them more "trendy" and "hip" if you will. What is the opinion of these shoes? I found one of two older post, asking about the quality of the shoes with mixed reviews, but that was years ago. It is also to my understanding the company is under new ownership in the past year or so? So my question to all of you is this. Are Grensons worth the money? Im looking at $400 and under shoes, so please do not suggest anything higher. No C&Js, no AEs, or any other somewhat conventional boring shoe. Looking for something with some style. Very modern. Looking forward to hearing what you have to say!
